Let's Split

Let’s Split Build Notes

In Spring of 2018 after moving to Tennesse I stil needed a new keyboard. I found some inexpensive PCBs online for a split ortholinear keyboard. Those were two variants that I’ve always wanted to try, so I decided to purchase them and complete it using the spare parts from my ynfinished custom build. This was essentially a “canned” build using COTS parts and guides from online, so nothing much of note happened. Still, documenting links and parts used here.

Flashing firmware

Essentially the QMK Let’s Split defaults, with a slightly modified keymap. Relevant part below. Flash with the following command.

make lets_split:joseph:avrdude
